Fast aggregation of large data (e.g. 100GB in RAM), fast ordered joins, fast add/modify/delete of columns by group using no copies at all, list columns, friendly and fast character-separated-value read/write. Offers a natural and flexible syntax, for faster development.
R interface for 'H2O', the scalable open source machine learning platform that offers parallelized implementations of many supervised and unsupervised machine learning algorithms such as generalized linear models, gradient boosting machines (including xgboost), random forests, deep neural networks (deep learning), stacked ensembles, naive bayes, cox proportional hazards, k-means, PCA, word2vec, as well as a fully automatic machine learning algorithm (AutoML).
